An Yanshi, a Chinese calligrapher, used panda faeces as fertilizer to cultivate a special blend of green tea called Panda Tea last year. Now, the first batch of the Panda Tea has been harvested.

An Yanshi divided the Panda Tea into three different grades and the highest grade will sell for as much as 440,000 yuan per kilogram.

Now, the Panda Tea has been recorded in the Guinness World Records as the most expensive tea in the world.

All the profits from the sales of the highest grade of the Panda Tea will be donated to the public welfare cause including environmental protection, said An.
